Array Variable cannot be found in Dynamic Content

In my flow, I create an array (VacationStartDates) using Initialize Variable. Then, I have a ForEach loop that appends dates into the VacationStartDates array. After the ForEach loop finishes, I have Send an Email action, but in there I cannot find the VacationStartDates array.

How would you like this array to be displayed?

 

An Array cannot be displayed as text. You would have to convert this array to text first. I would probably append the text representation of the dates a to string varibale rather than an array.

I want store the dates into a variable and later want to display them in an email.

 

I am building a vacation system. To be more precise, let me give the following scenario:

 

An employee has made 2 vacation requests:

 

1. - Vacation Start Date: December 3rd.

    - Vacation end Date:  December 7th.

 

2. - Vacation Start Date: November 26th.

    - Vacation end Date:  November 27th.

 

Now he is requesting the 3rd request, the Flow will email his manager telling that he has already 2 requests:

 

1. From December 3rd to December 7th.

 

2. From November 26th to November 26th. 

 

It's very easy to do in programming languages. I don't know how to do it in Flow. Even I don't know how to access items in an array.

 

Thank you.

 

 

Hi @deddyandy,

 

I assume that you may need to use a Variables function to get the corresponding dynamic content.

I have made the following test, please check it for a reference.

It is triggered by When an item is created.

Initialize variable 2 and variable 3 for VcacationStartDate and VacatioEndDate.

Then the Get items action. Instead of using a Condition, I use Filter query to get the specific Title.

Add an Apply to each, add two Append to array variable actions for StartDate and EndDate.

Under Apply to each, add action Send an email. To get the StartDate and EndDate array, use the Variables function likes below:

variables('VacationStartDate')

Please take a try with it on your side.

Hi @v-yamao-msft,

 

Thank you for the Variables function, but the Flow has an error in Filter Query.
